SRMC earns award for excellence

Sonora Regional Medical center recently received a bronze award for the California Awards for Performance Excellence (CAPE) from the California Council for Excellence (CCE).

CCE awarded the 2016 CAPE Eureka Awards to five organizations for outstanding innovation, continuous improvement and visionary leadership.

Two of the five winning organizations are Adventist Health facilities: Sonora Regional Medical Center and Adventist Health Central Valley Network.

The 2016 Eureka Award recipients are:

Gold Level: Stellar Solutions, Inc., Palo Alto (small business)

Silver Level: Adventist Health Central Valley Network, Hanford (health care); AltaMed Health Services, Los Angeles (health care)

Bronze: Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation: Golden Gate, San Francisco; Sonora Regional Medical Center (health care)

According to a press release, the CAPE Eureka Award process is modeled after that of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, which raises awareness about the importance of performance excellence in driving the U.S. and global economy; provides organizational assessments, training, tools and criteria; educates leaders in business, schools, health care organizations, and government and nonprofit organizations; shares best practices of national role models; and recognizes those role models with the Baldrige Award.

The Eureka applicants are evaluated through a rigorous three-month process that includes a weeklong site visit and covers the applicants’ performance in seven areas defined by the Baldrige Framework.

The Eureka application evaluation is overseen by the CAPE board of judges to ensure the integrity of the process and to recommend recognition levels to CCE’s Board of Directors for ratification.
